A Combined Active-Steering Differential-Braking Yaw Rate Control Strategy for Emergency Maneuvers 980230

The problem of vehicle stability in emergency maneuvers has attracted a lot of research effort recently. Perhaps the most effective contributions made in this area were devoted to the control of vehicle yaw rate either by active steering or differential braking control systems. Each control technique has its own limitations that make it ineffective in some particular situations. This paper introduces a combined steering and braking control strategy using a fuzzy logic inference system. The proposed controller uses the estimated coefficient of friction (μ) to organize the combined control action. Computer simulation using a comprehensive vehicle model is used to illustrate the strengths and limitations of various control strategies.
